Make donations online

Donations are an important way of contributing to a good cause in memory of a loved one. George Scott and Sons has partnered with Memory Giving to manage donations in memory of loved ones. The service is provided to funeral directors allowing us to dedicate a page in memory of loved ones. Memory Giving was established in 2010 to provide a secure method of donating and encourage the use of gift aid (which rarely happens when donations are made by cheque).

If you wish for donations to be made online we can create a page dedicated in memory to the person and we can place a photograph and message along with funeral details. When making a donation, family and friends can leave a tribute. They are also encouraged to provide details so gift aid can be claimed.

You can click the button below. This will take you to the Memory Giving website which will show you the collections we have open. If you do not see the person listed you can discuss the possibility of starting a page with the family and we would be happy to set this once permission has been given.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving to charity. It is a scheme introduced by HM Revenue & Customs, which allows us to reclaim the basic rate of tax you pay as a UK taxpayer. Memory Giving will recover the gift aid automatically.

When can it be claimed?

The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts made by UK tax payers. Remember that what you pay in income/capital gains tax, must at least equal the amount of tax that all the charities and Amateur Sports Clubs you give to will reclaim on your gift aid donations in the tax year in which they are received. A declaration is required by the donor to this effect when donating

The Declaration

As part of the donation process you will be required to provide  your name, address and confirmation from you that you have paid enough tax and your donation qualifies.

How much is it?

Gift Aid is worth at least an extra 25p for every £1 you give. This is at absolutely no extra cost to you. Therefore a donation of £10 will become £12.50.
